The Deewaru tribals and Adi Dravida communities in Shimoga District practice the art of Hase-Chittara, wall or mural painting. The design consists of stylized geometric shapes and figures, representing fertility symbols, images from nature or daily life. The walls are covered in red mud found abundantly in the region. The designs are drawn in white derived from rice paste and mud. Black is made out of burnt and pounded rice. Yellow is from the seeds of the gurige tree, special to Shimoga District. Gowramma of Beemanakone village executed the artwork as an early attempt at translating mural art on to paper.
